Over a year ago I was listening to a blog talk prophecy radio show by John Claeys and a caller asked a question about the upcoming election.  I will never forget John’s statement to the caller, which was “There has never been a President who was elected to a second term without supporting Israel.”  President Obama is now the first.  He has been cold in his support of Israel.  Therefore, the fact that he got reelected tells me something about bible prophecy.  This is not about political parties or ideology as it is about what God is doing.

In Daniel 7, he describes four beasts.  Each beast is a representative a kingdom that is and ones that will be.  The first is Babylon, then the Medes-Persians, followed by Greece, and lastly the fourth Kingdom which is not necessarily Rome but a new world empire.  I write that it is not Rome because Daniel who correctly identifies Greece before they were really any sort of a power could have done the same with Rome.  This fourth empire is like Rome, but different.  It is more vicious and dominant than Rome ever was.  Daniel 7:23 says, “The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth.  Which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth…”  Daniel goes on and says in verse 24, “The ten horns (of the fourth beast) are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom…”  The day of America being a world power is swiftly coming to an end.

I am not one of those doomsday people who believe because Obama got elected that we should all run for the hills and hide in caves.  In my previous blog I wrote about how God is ultimately in control and leading us.  This is all happening to our country because God has a plan and His plan usurps anything that we would want.  Therefore, we should look to God and not our president for our help.

It seems that Obama does not have a good relationship with Israel, also America has seemed to lose it’s influence in the Middle-East.  What does that mean? It means the way is being cleared for a new leader in the Middle-East to rise up.  Who will that be?  He will be the Antichrist or as John calls him in Revelation The Beast.  America will probably be one of the ten kingdoms that Daniel 7 writes about.  The world now is becoming a much smaller place and it will be interesting to watch what will happen here in the next four years with President Obama.  All I know is that God is control.  His plan was for Obama to get elected to set up other things He is doing for His return.  May the Lord come quickly.


Babylon being Reborn

An article in The New Times over a year ago talked about the rebuilding of the ancient city of Babylon.  While this is hardly recent news, I was still surprised to learn that there was great effort and money being put into rebuilding this city.  I posted a blog the other day called “Mystery Babylon” and I talked about how Babylon would the center for the world when the Antichrist rules in the Tribulation.  I wondered as I wrote the blog how this was even going to happen.  I dug a little and found that Babylon was even being restored back as the early 80’s when Saddam Hussein decided to rebuild it as a connection to the past.  In some ways it seemed that Saddam thought of himself as a modern day Nebuchadnezzar.

Babylon in bible prophecy goes all the way back to Genesis and Nimrod, 10:8,9.  The bible tells us that “Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the Lord.”  This type of terminology implies antagonism against and opposition to God.  Rabbic interpretation of the phrase “a mighty hunter,” implies that he snared men with his words and incited them to rebel against God.    This rebellion against God was what would later come to be The Tower of Babel in Genesis 11.  The purpose of the Tower as the center piece of the city was for worship to reach out to the heavens.  The Tower was for astrology or the signs of the zodiac.  This is the beginning of false religion and idolatry, which is why Revelation 17:5 refers to Babylon as THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS.

Today with the rebuilding of ancient Babylon the foreshadowing of the future events of the Tribulation have been set.
